Now, Travis has confirmed the reports in a post on Instagram Stories on Saturday. The Blink 182 artist wrote:
“I had a colonoscopy on Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I had severe pain and have been hospitalized ever since.

This leads to severe, life-threatening pancreatitis. “

“I am so grateful to God for healing my husband, for all your prayers for him and for us, for his overwhelming love and support. I am very touched and appreciated. I am very grateful to our specialists, doctors and nurses at Cedars Sinai for the excellent care of my husband and I during our stay. “
